A New Beginning To An Old Tale

I want to use this blog not just as a place to list interesting deities but to categorize them by pantheon, elements, symbols, characteristics and of course what they preside over.

I’ll be starting at the Greek Pantheon and working on to Norse, Egyptian, Hindu, Japanese, Aztec, Oceanic, Sumerian, and whatever catches my fancy. If you have any requests, suggestions, corrections, recommendations, etc. drop me a line! 

Wish me luck!
